step one: Prep hair with straight and smooth spray
Spritz ghd straight & smooth spray onto your tresses. It’s the perfect product when it comes to creating straight hairstyles, helping create a smooth finish.
step three: Create a centre parting
Use the point of your ghd tail comb to part your hair straight down the middle, leaving two equal amounts of hair on either side.
step five: Take elastic and place at the base of one of your pigtail
This elastic will be used to tie the pigtail into a tight, straight bunch - ready for your hair extension to be wrapped around it.
step six: Tie elastic in a criss-cross down pigtail
Starting from the base, twist the elastic around and down the pigtail. This will twist hair into a tight bunch and keep it secured. Tie the elastic in a knot at the end to secure it.
step seven: Glide styler through your extensions
Create a smooth, straight hairstyle by running the ghd gold® styler from the top to the ends of your hair extensions. Choose ones that match the colour of your hair for a flawless finish.
step eight: Wind extensions up pigtail, securing as you go
Take one side of your hair extension and, starting from the bottom, wind it around the pigtail. Secure it as you work your way up at every fourth wind with a small hair grip.
step nine: Secure your extension at the top of your pigtail
Once you reach the top of your pigtail, secure the extension in place with a hair grip.
step ten: Wrap a piece of hair around the pony
Create a truly flawless finish for this double ponytail hairstyle by taking a 1-inch piece of hair and wrapping it around the base of the pigtail. This will make it sit proud from the head, resulting in a bold look.
step eleven: Spray with final fix hairspray
Rather than using a pin or clip, spray the wrapped hair with ghd final fix hairspray to secure it in place.
step thirteen: Repeat steps 5-12 on the other side of your head
Create the same look on the other side of your head, following the steps above again.
step fourteen: Spray shine spray on your fingers or a brush
Spritz ghd final shine spray onto your fingers or a ghd oval paddle brush.
step fifteen: Smooth down flyaways
Use your fingers or the brush to gently tame any flyaways and achieve a flawless, glossy finish.
Get ready to turn heads with this bold ponytail hairstyle. It’s daring enough for a night time look or to make a statement when you’re heading into the office.
